CWmike writes Steven Sinofsky, president of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live division, said this week that Windows 8 will allow users to treat the traditional office as just another app that is supported only on order.
When he unveiled Windows 8 UI in June, Microsoft said it would be with a first touch interface to compete in the rapidly growing market tablet. Underneath that, however, is a classic style Windows desktop. Having both of the user interfaces work together harmoniously is an important part of Windows 8, Steven Sinofsky said in a blog post on Wednesday, user interface style subway -. inspired by the design of tile-based Windows Mobile 7 – the first to appear when the user starts a device A.
This point, users reach a crossroads, If you want to stay permanently immersed in a world of subway, you will never see the desktop – we will even load it (literally, the code will not load), unless you choose explicitly to go there, Sinofsky said.
If you do not want to ‘PC’ things, then you do not and you do not pay for them in memory, battery life and the hardware configuration. If you use a conventional PC with keyboard and mouse, Windows users will run an 8 app to load the desktop, he said. Essentially, you can think of your Windows desktop just like any other application.
